Walter Surface Technologies has introduced a new cutting wheel designed to easily cut through steel or stainless steel in heavy-duty applications.
The ZIP+ XTRA cutting wheel is the newest addition to Walter’s ZIP line family of cutting wheels, replacing the existing ZIP+ due to its increased performance. Ideal for metal fabricators, manufacturers and contractors who are looking for a fast, smooth and efficient cut for their most demanding applications, the cutting wheel features Walter’s exclusive, patented rib design to reduce friction on the surface for faster and cooler cutting. It is 1/16-inch thick, which allows it to last longer and cut through heavy-duty applications with safety and precision.
The ZIP+ XTRA comes in Walter’s exclusive protective packaging, designed to preserve the wheel’s physical properties until ready for use so that performance and safety are kept at the highest standards possible. In addition, the wheel is designed with a new formulation of zirconium grains that are more durable against the toughest materials.
“The product is called ZIP+ XTRA because we wanted to emphasize that this cutting wheel is extra safe, extra strong and extra tough,” says Marc Brunet-Gagne, product manager at Walter Surface Technologies. “With this new formulation, we are able to produce a product that can cut through the most demanding cutting applications with ease and, therefore, reduce costs associated with wheel changeover as well as costs related to the amount of wheels used throughout the year.”
The ZIP+ XTRA is available in 4-½-inch and five-inch diameters.
